Although unseasonably cold air is forecast to linger around into Valentine's Day, it's not known just how cold the air mass will be and if it could be enough to support low elevation snow for Portland and Seattle. Keep an eye on the forecast through the weekend.

"While it may not sound like a big deal to those in the Midwest, the last time we saw 1 or more inches of snow here was on Feb 10th, 2019", tweeted the Portland National Weather Service office. The gorge could see up to 9 inches of new snow from Friday night through Saturday.

Another storm system may hit southern New England late Monday into Tuesday, bringing several inches of snow as well as mixed precipitation and ice to MA, though the forecast is subject to change more than 72 hours out. And it could affect all of north Alabama and a decent chunk of north-central Alabama.

Sunday, Feb. 14 will start out slippery, with a chance of snow, freezing rain, and sleet, through late in the morning on a cloudy day with a high temperature in the low 30s and wind-chill values in the 20s.

The National Weather Service in Huntsville said a slight chance of freezing rain will arrive tonight for northwest Alabama.

Some brief travel problems will be possible before the precipitation changes over to all rain later Saturday morning.

While heavy snowfall is not in the weather forecast for today, Accuweather reports that more snow could hit our area this coming week.

The first of two storms that pushed into the Portland area Thursday will bring more snow showers and possibly freezing rain south of the city early Friday.

After dry weather Wednesday, another system will move in for Thursday. Expect mostly rain from both chances as temperatures warm into the 50s.
